This restaurant is very busy in the tourist season with a large and varied menu. You tend to pay a bit more for the location right on the river bank but well worth it, even for a cofee or tapas.

Riverside restaurant with an excellent lunch menu coming in at very favourable prices. The a la carte menu at evening times well over twice the price. The environment is very pleasing and the staff were very attendant. Food was very good indeed.

As others have mentioned, this place isn't that cheap. But for the quality you get, the price is fair; a salad (fresh and very tasty), three entrecôtes (excellent- the cut may not be the most beautiful, but the taste is superb), a couple of good desserts and a coffee, plus six beers, a couple of glasses of white and a...
